this week in martha's vinyard, but before taking off friday, he held a news conference and talked a bit about the process of finding the next federal reserve chairman. mr. obama says he has a range of outstanding candidates, and confirmed that janet yellen and larry summers are both in the mix. "a critical part of the job is making sure we keep inflation in check, that monetary policy is sound, that the dollar is sound. those are all critical components of the job." the news conference followed a closed-door meeting on goverment surveillence. ceos from apple and at&t were among those who attended. the president is opening an investigation into nsa surveillance programs. the former jp morgan trader known as the "london whale" may be off the hook. reports say bruno iksil is not likely to face charges related to bad trading bets that racked up more than $6 billion in losses for jp morgan chase. iksil is called the london whale because he was based in jp morgan's london office and put on monster-sized trading positions. the justice deparmtment and sec are still investigating the bank, but t

. they were busy up in martha's vineyard. there could be lots of different reasons. what i don't understand, why is everybody coming down on the republicans and asking them to defend themselves. do you really believe in the constitution, like i am sure peter king doesn't believe in the constitution. give me a break, of course he does. why aren't democrats being held accountable. republicans aren't in charge of anything except the house of representatives. >> they get the blame. >> the obama team knew this "the washington post" report was coming, why didn't they get out in front of it when president obama talked about the reforms. remember the press conference before he left for martha's vineyard, about reforms, more transparency to the nsa program. they knew this was coming, that would have been a good opportunity to have talked about it and got it out. then it all would be out in the wash. >> important to keep in mind a majority of the house republicans voted to defund the nsa. >> what about the democrats, bob, seriously? >> do the democrats give a crap about anything? do they care about a

. cheryl: today's closing argument between macy's, martha stewart and any, of the interesting things that came out of it is you have to wonder if any would be breathing a sigh of relief if they don't get this to go away because this is a ten year agreement with marcus during. ten year commitment that the current ceos made, ron johnson made this deal with martha stewart. >> interesting point, the martha brand will be strong for a long time. personally i think the quality of the merchandise is as important as the name. if the name is going to continue it is a split deal where they have to share it. that might not be as attractive either. consumers do recognize the quality of the product and the design. where that comes from i don't think is critical. cheryl: as long as they can get on sale that is aurora important part. thank you very much. they have been but people want what they want. dennis: in today's media minute next time you order a burger at a fast-food joint stick the best of the debit card and use your smart phone. verizon, at&t, t mobile going nationwide with isis, a service
saturday when the obama's plan to kick off their vacation in martha's vineyard. joe biden is hanging out in the hamptons with alec baldwin, rubbing shoulders with celebrities at a posh beach spa. this should come as no surprise to anybody. if we've learned anything about this president over the last few years, he's proven to be a do as they say, not a do as i do kind of guy. >> when i took office, i pledged to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term. this wasteful spending has many sources. it's time for this waste and inefficiency to end. this is how we can reduce spending, by scouring the budget, by reforming government spending in a time of great need, when our families and nation are finding it necessary to tighten our belts. and be more responsible with how we spend our money. we can't afford to waste taxpayer dollars. one of the commitments i made to the american people was that we would do a better job here in washington in rooting out wasteful spending. with a recovery package of this size comes a responsibility to ensure every taxpayer that we're being careful with t
. >> you know, i want to go back to the president's news conference martha's vineyard, took time out from his vacation to denounce the violence we've been showing on our screen. what he didn't denounce were the attacks on coptic christians and these christian churches, the coptic pope is in hiding, a great many christians as well. and yet no denouncetion from this president. why is that? >> you know, gregg, i actually think the president did a good job this week in martha's vineyard when he talked about this issue. we didn't come out and say that the islamists won the election and they should be in charge. that's a good movement from this president. i think it's a very difficult time when you have so much violence going on and you have to remember that he was speaking right after many people, 600, 7 ooshgs 00, 800, are being reported killed. he should have said the violence against the christians in egypt is absolutely unacceptable as well, but i think he got it right in balance and that hew l denounce that violence against the christians. but let's be clear. there's violence going on on
martha stewart, too. >> well, so, jcpenney we know for sure is reporting their earnings tomorrow morning before the opening bell. and remember, they don't give guidance anymore, so some of the analysts' estimates are all over the place. but on average, we are looking for a loss of about $1.06 or $1.07 on revenue of $2.76 billion. the same-store sales number, many expect it will be negative, down around 8% or so. and we know that they told us their cash on the balance sheet was $1.5 billion. they told us that when they released some of the information about that earlier on. as far as the ruling goes, the court case, we actually don't know when that is going to come down. the judge said in closing arguments that he will get it to us soon. we don't exactly know how we will get the information, and if it will be given to the lawyers as a heads-up or it gets posted online and we all get it at the same time. but whatever it is, and whenever it is, it will certainly make headlines. >> it certainly will. >> thank you, court. >> reporter: thank you. >> see you later. that's going to be big when t
supporters of the muslim brotherhood this week alone. we go live to martha's vineyard where president obama continues his vacation. any sign from the administration of what they will or even perhaps what they will not do next? >> well, craig, good afternoon. the administration at this point is not signaling any major shift in policy when it comes to egypt. we know that president obama has been briefed daily by his national security adviser susan rice, who is vacationing here on martha's vineyard with him. and of course this past week president obama announced that he would be canceling joint military operations between the u.s. and egypt that were scheduled to take place next month. this was a strong, symbolic rebuke to military for their inability to really get this situation under control in egypt and to get the unrest under control in egypt. but what the administration has not announced is that they will be withholding or withdrawing that $1.3 billion in military aid that they give to egypt every year, and that is really the united states' largest point of leverage at this point in time.
to be a matter of whether the u.s. will strike syria but when. abc's martha raddatz is in the region this morning and has the latest on the crisis in syria. >> reporter: he is the man at the center of the horror, a brutal dictator who the vice president said is undeniably responsible for gassing his own innocent people. >> there is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria -- the syrian regime. >> reporter: there seems no question that the u.s. is ready to strike a punishing blow to assad. u.s. warships are in place, cruise missiles at the ready, the targets in syria selected. >> if the order comes, you are ready to go -- like that? >> we are ready to go like that. >> reporter: what might assad do in response? the syrian regime has hundreds of tons of mustard gas and large stock piles of sarin. add to that 100,000 missiles and rockets including thousand of powerful scud missiles which could reach any target in neighboring israel. here in israel, a run on gas masks, requests increasing fourfold. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu saying israel is ready fo
, a continuing resolution to fund the government expiring -- martha, i'm wondering if you can talk about what the obama administration is proposing in early childhood, what the administration is wanting to see , and maybe how they are working to get congress to take up these issues when it is hard to get funding bills going at this point. >> one thing to be clear -- the cuts in headstart and sequestration in general were very much not the administration's plan. you're very much trying to put ourselves on a path to reverse that. moreover, our plan for early education is very much one of investment. investment in head start, not only making sure that programs can keep up with the cost of inflation and not have to make choices that were described, but also to build out a new early head start childcare partnership so some of the best things about head start can be brought to the broader childcare subsidy system and we can raise the quality of early childhood for those infants and toddlers. we have proposed a large investment in home visiting, which is in place right now, but the money is temporar
. and now it's on to court and jcpenney joining martha stewart living omnimedia against macy's. and seeing the parties in court today for the first time in three months and it's possible the judge could even render a decision today because he's had all of the post trial briefs for quite some time to really determine who, in fact, has the right to sell martha stewart designed products in the categories that macy's claims it contractually owns. right now martha stewart's legal team is presenting its closing argument. jcpenney's team will present after that. each of those legal teams will get 75 minutes each before macy's goes on for two hours of its closing. the judge said he will not ask any questions this time, he'll simply sit back and listen and take notes. macy's is no longer asking the judge to pull the jcpenney everyday products that martha stewart designed off of the shelves but is instead asking that he prohibit martha stewart living from designing any additional products in those categories. also macy's is now seeking damages, attorney's fees and punitive damages and injunctive rel

. imagine schools, hospitals, prisons are based on what actual communities needed. >> tells about martha biggs in chicago. >> incredible mother of four he spent about a decade homeless in south side chicago. she was evicted twice. finally she said, i don't want my family to be sleeping in my minivan and have these think owned homes creating crime, creating. othersalong with rehabbed a bank owned home and she and her family liberated it and they still live there. >> in north carolina we see moral monday's. tell us the story about greg. >> he spent about 10 years legally fighting incredibly conjugated foreclosure in which he dealt with every single major perpetrator of these crimes. wells fargo, gmac, the robo signing -- everything. he got more than 40 foreclosure filings over the course of a decade. one time he got it dismissed. two days later he received a new one in the mail. history demonstrates the way wall street had actually no idea what they were doing through the foreclosure crisis. and there's no reason we should continue to allow them to break these laws. >> in your book, there
conference tomorrow before he heads to martha's vineyard for vacation. to add to this, the always shy demur ann coulter. how are you? >> fine, thank you. so looking forward to talk with you. >> so many think the american people are too dependent on government. what does that say? >> to be honest with you, the american people are a little schizophrenic on it. they always say government is too big and then you start talking about what you're going to cut. no, no, don't cut that. the one exception to that is obama care and that's why amnesty is so important. if amnesty goes through, obama care will never, ever, ever be overturned. i think for one thing, please do not take your eye off the ball, republicans, whether it's the government shutdown or defunding obama care. biggest issue facing us is blocking obama care. it's already passed in the senate and they're trying to slip it through, especially by not talking about it. politicians know that as soon as we talk about it, people will start writing and calling and telling us we don't want obama care but as long as we don't say anything we can s
in martha's vineyard, but it is not like the president is far from the job. wendell goler tells us about one item on the president's to do list. >> reporter: in between missing putts with golfing buddies, president obama may use some of his time on his vacation thinking about a replacement for fed chairman ben bernanke, who is leaving the most powerful economic position in the world in january. >> it is definitely one of the most important economic decisions i make in the remainder of my presidency. >> reporter: he told reporters friday that he is considering a number of qualified candidates, some experts think the short list is down to larry summers, former head of national economic council, and treasury secretary under president clinton, and janet yellin, the first woman to head the fed. >> 70, 80% of value, yellin will be the nominee. and if it would be someone else, summers, there has to be market adjustment. >> reporter: that adjustment would likely be down. but wouldn't last longs. given the fed's dual mandate, keeping inflation low and employment high, the latter should be the focus.
intelligence. >>> kristen welker is in martha vineyards where president obama is vacationing. what are lawmakers saying to you about this latest threat? >> reporter: alex, good day to you. lawmakers seem to be on the same page. closing the 19 embassies was the right move because it pointed to the fact that al qaeda was planning either one large explosion or a series of explosions. here's a little bit more on that from congressman peter king. take a listen. >> the intelligence that i saw here was at least as powerful as anything i've seen since 9/11, probably the closest would be the liquid explosive plot out of london in 2006. but this was very credible. it was corroborated and spoke of a massive attack and to me was the right thing to do. >> now, alex, some republicans did use the closure of those 19 embassies to attack president obama's foreign policy center. john mccain making a point that the peninsula has gotten much stronger in recent years and also argue that it's an indication that president obama hasn't been strong enough in terms of combatting that growing presence and th

. >>clayton: even in martha's vineyard last night he was at a fund-raiser at a big rich house. he does hollywood fund-raisers in 10,000 square foot homes and celebrities pour in money. some of these very same figures show up to these fund-raisers who he is talking about and bashing in his speech about youth. i also see his point that these kids today when they jump on twitter, you ask them an historical question, we've done pieces where we ask them american history and they don't know anything about it. >>gretchen: you can see this story from a couple of different points of view, but i think the essence of what he said is correct. i think our kids are growing up in a different kind of culture and maybe look up to people that maybe they shouldn't be looking up to and different values have gone by the wayside. my two cents. >>eric: but he still uses them for his own means. you've got to call him out. you can't have it both ways. either it's a bad idea, they're bad role models or they raise a lot of money and they need to embrace success. let us know what you think. >> incredible video sh
job enough. >> republican congresswoman martha roby smiled and laughed at a voter describing the president as a, quote, foreign-born, america-hating communist. and earlier this summer, republican congressman jeff duncan went there. >> any chance the house may actually pursue barack obama's phony identification papers? >> well, you know, how is the original scandal, congressman? that's the original scandal. >> people should have voted against him in november. and i'm afraid that that wouldn't get to the supreme court where it ought to get. >> but if we know -- if we know that they're lying about all of these other things, why not go back and say, well, maybe the first scandal was a lie too. >> there you go. i'm all with you. let's go back and revisit some of these things, because americans have questions about not only the irs scandal, but also about the president's validity. >> he's got questions about the president's validity. so speaker boehner, forget the rips. forget the ice cream. how about denouncing the crazy talk? how about showing some leadership? that's a birthday g
or road by on his bike in martha's vineyard. the keystone pipeline decision is pending for this president after he put it off last year to allow for more study on the issue. when it comes to our country dealing with canada's dirty oil and its by-products, one american fight against one giant pile of oily canadian mess has actually quietly just been won. it started right here on the banks of the detroit river in detroit, michigan, and yes, that is a giant nasty pile of something called pet coke. back in may "the new york times" highlighted what they described as a black mound of canadian oil waste rising over detroit. that oil waste is something called petroleum coke, a high sulfur, high carbon waste by-product of canadian oil sands. the petcoke that residents started spotting was put there by a company that owned it, a company call koch carbon, owned by the koch brothers. they started piling up all of this pet coke on banks of the detroit river before preparing to ship it off to other countries to be used as fuel. in addition to be a hideous eye sore, the pile also posed a potential healt
much golf during the wore. >> today the president celebrates his love of golf. last week in martha's vineyard mr. obama play six rounds of golf in just nine days. >> next, the rising toll of lyme disease and the questions surrounding treatment. jeffrey brown has the story. >> lyme disease was first identified in the 1970s but it now turns out it's much more common than previously estimated, about 10 times more. the cdc reported this week an estimated 300,000 americans get the tick-borne disease every year. symptoms include, fatigue, fever, skin rashes and a headache. left untreated it can lead to arthritis, facial pawlzy and problems with the nervous system. of the nu she has been working a series absent the disease and its impact. welcome. first of all how significant are the new numbers, more cases than previously thought. >> you know, the really significant, politically especially. for years scientists and those who work with patient whose have lyme disease felt the numbers were off. there were estimates in the 90s that said lyme disease was under reported by three to 12 fold bu
with congressman martha roby with this tea party group. >> what i need from you is to know what you can do. you and your fellow noncolonel anymore colleagues in the lower house. what you can do to stop these communist tyrannical executive orders laid down by this foreign born american hating communist despot. what can you do? we need to know. >> so thank you for your question. he said it loud enough that you all heard it. look, i can't emphasize the oversight part of my job enough. >> you know, michael, i don't think that she necessarily agrees with that gentleman. she did a pretty decent job of jumping to the, what she wanted to talk about. but the fact that she didn't challenge him, i think, is the story. these voters are a huge part of the party. they seem to be the most active. so it seem like there is a fear to challenge someone. sort of unlike what we saw during the 2008 campaign, where you had john mccain when confronted with someone who called the president. he was willing to stand up. and it seems to me within your party, there is this tension between trying to please the tea party but
or elsewhere. we start with the news. it is just breaking now. i'm bill hemmer in "america's newsroom." martha has time with the family. good to see you heather. >> i'm heather childers. nice to be back. pentagon officials say the broad evacuation effort is due to the threat that already prompted the closure of 19 u.s. embassies across the middle east and after from. bill: greg palkot picks up the story live from london with the latest there what is the latest you're hearing on the ground in yemen, greg. >> reporter: latest from our contacts on the ground in yemen things are definitely getting serious there. fox news was told at least one c-117 u.s. military aircraft transported something like 90 non-essential staffers from the embassy. u.s. citizens outside the embassy told to leave immediately. we were on the phone with the embassy this morning. it certainly sounded like they were on high alert. we had been there, it is a well-secured embassy, but according to my contacts it is more secure today. additional tanks, armored personnel carriers, all around that place, u.s. surveillance aircraft
. abc's martha raddatz has the latest. >> reporter: thousands of syrians fleeing damascus as president obama leaves no doubt in an interview with pbs that syria's president assad has crossed a red line. >> when countries break international norms on weapons like chemical weapons that could threaten us, that they're held accountable. >> reporter: the president said he has not yet made a decision to strike, but if one is launched, it would be aimed at preventing another chemical attack, not in taking sides in syria's bloody civil war. there are dozens of potential targets. but likely, top among them, facilities storing vehicles which could launch chemical weapons like this storage depot near damascus. >> the president wants to prevent assad from using chemical weapons on his people again, but he can't hit the chemical weapons storage sites directly. >> reporter: if the u.s. wants to take aim at assad's military, it could strike the vital mezze airfield. or american missiles could lock on a symbolic target that would send a strong message to assad like the ministry of defense in damascus.
obama speaking thursday from martha's vineyard about the violence in egypt. the message seems clear. we can't expect democratic reform overpass in egypt. we have to ask when the military wipes out the results of what many may have been imperfect but democratic in nature election how are we to think the country is starting down the path. i want to bring back in mona on that very question. we saw mubarak, 40-year dictator step down in february 2011. we are now really only two years on. can we really have expected egypt to stand up a u.s. style democracy in such a short time? are these the growing pains of democracy or is egypt really fundamentally off the rails. >> you know, what i think is happening we're appreciated for the unpredictability we have. for too long egypt was considered predictable. for too long five u.s. administrations support add dictator at the expense of the people for the sake of stability. so it's that kind of predictability i'm gladys gone. again, i condemn all the blood letting but we have to get this out of our system. this is a mess but it's a necessary mess beca
since getting back from his vacation in martha's vineyard last night. and the white house says he is doing this to convey a sense of urgency on all these regulators and capitalize on the momentum they developed relating to all the rules stemming from the dodd-frank financial reform approved by congress three years ago. this is coming up on the fifth year anniversary of the financial crisis. the president doesn't want to let this moment go to waste. take a listen. >> there is no question large financial institutions including investment firms and banks on wall street wield significant influence over the political process in washington, d.c. that is the benefit of having independent regulators who can make their own determinations about the rules and regulations that should be put in place. >> the president comes back with a very full agenda for the rest of the summer and for the fall including budget battles here in washington, increase in the debt ceiling, the fight over that that will come later this year, and of course finding a successor to fed chairman bernanke. as we've been
the from martha's vineyard. what is the white house saying about all this today? >> referring questions to the national security agency which says these are mistakes and may seem to be a large number of them is a small percentage of phone calls and e-mails the agency tracks. the information contained in a 2012 audit that ed snowden leaked to the washington post and won nsa official said, quote, when nsa makes a mistake carrying out for an intelligence mission the agency reports the issue internally and federal overseers and aggressively gets to the bottom of it. still the audit indicates the nsa decided not to tell its oversight staff about some mistake in data collection and that casts doubt on the president's assertion the nsa's vast abilities are not being used. >> what you are not reading about is the government actually abusing these programs. listening in on people's phone calls or inappropriately reading people's e-mails, what you are hearing about is the prospect that these could be abused. >> one of those involve tracking phone calls from washington d.c. when an analyst put in
one. and then he will be off the door on to vacation at martha's vineyard. why don't we bring in an unpaid lackey of the democrats. it is friday, bernard, don't take offense. >> i am grateful to be here. stuart: i want to discuss the style president obama holds news conferences. he has developed a specific way of answering questions. he runs off the clock. it is a long time to get it out there. >> frankly i wish we had more opportunities for our leader to get out in front and answer questions. the fact of the matter is i would rather in this day of 140 character tweets to have extended the questions for thinking the position, attitude and approach, engage in a dialogue that is sensitive rather than soundbites to soundbite as a way to move forward. i hope he actually comes out swinging. could have gone on vacation, hopes he challenges congress and friendly deals with the critical issues, pushes through immigration reform instead of working to be funded obamacare, come up with proposals to improve obamacare. stuart: do you think the president this afternoon will directly affect
